Last year, I was successful in keeping two plants alive and producing: Cherry tomatoes & basil. This feat made me think that I can add more plants to my list of responsibility. I knew I wanted to keep this project contained to my back deck so that I would not have to tromp through the yard to go water a garden. So, a container garden on the back deck it is! Another reason I like this idea is because I can use potting soil. No soil testing, augmenting, tilling, etc. Just pour & plant!
Here it is:
Top from left to right: Dahlia, Basil & Rosemary, Cherry Tomatoes
Bottom from left to right: Bell Peppers & Jalapenos, Cucumbers, Salad Greens & Spinach
This guy is going to tend to the basil & rosemary.
I'm pretty excited to be able to go pick my salad when I want one!
And some pretty tulips that were in the front yard!
